Blackpool currently sit twelfth in the league table, with a relatively impressive 18 points from 14 matches.  They have been a scoring threat, with 21 goals, but they have conceded 27, the most in the league.  It has been a wild ride so far though.  Way back on August 4th, I wrote this about the Seasiders;

There will be a draw against a big team, maybe even a home win against a top 4 side, an inspiring performance away from home in London or Manchester, and a lot of fun afternoons that the supporters should make sure they enjoy, because this is a one season adventure.

So far, Blackpool have drawn against Everton, beaten Liverpool, and had several other fine afternoons, defeating the likes of Wigan and Newcastle quite soundly.  I am hoping they don't have another of those fine afternoons against Bolton this weekend, but it is a distinct possibility.  Despite all this, they are only four points clear of the relegation zone, and clubs such as Everton, Aston Villa, and Fulham are almost certain to leapfrog the Tangerines.  I still think Blackpool will go down, but it is going to be close.
